Surge Analysis for piping

Surge Analysis for piping

Surge Analysis for piping

can anyone advice , what specific software use to do for the piping surge analysis.

RE: Surge Analysis for piping

A transient one.

There are many different software suites for this, all with some advantages.

You are best to hire an experienced flow assurance engineer / company and use their experience.

If you have a network that will be different to single pipes.

But why are you doing this now if the pipes are already built?

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

RE: Surge Analysis for piping

It depends a little on what you mean by "Surge Analysis" ...

Surge Analysis is sometimes called "Waterhammer" or "Steamhammer" analysis in Powerplant and process industries.

There is analysis software available that will develop a forcing function for a particular piping system.

The forcing function results are then typically used to perform a more complete stress analysis of a piping system using an analysis program such as CAESAR-II. The resultant stress levels and loads on pipe supports can be then evaluated.

Dear MJCronin,

thank you very much for your advice, and will get contact Singapore agent to provide software and training to my engineers.


RE: Surge Analysis for piping

Dear Littleinch,

thank you for your advice, however i would like to get trained my engineers to perform this activities in the future projects, we are getting in contact with agents for software snd training.


RE: Surge Analysis for piping

My opinion. It's more easy to prevent water hammer using special methods like slowly closing valves, using buffer tanks, etc. instead of fighting with it's aftermath like loads, displacements etc.
